No you did. From that...

"...ARE BEING PUNISHED..." Present tense.
"IF YOU ARE HERE LOOKING FOR A MAGAZINE THAT IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE..." present tense and without any qualification at all this statement is implicitly ties to the rest of the article. It completely ignores that capitalism is the sole cause for the availability problem.

The muddle piece does further mention future laws but it is not exclusively about what might happen.
